A truly pro solution for your project studio!

The Universal Audio 6176 Channel Strip gives you the classic sound of the legendary 610 Modular Console. Advances in digital recording technology are providing users with tremendous power and flexibility for increasingly less money. All too often, however, the audio quality of these systems is limited by their input stages. Many users who demand the power and flexibility of today's recording technology find themselves yearning for the warmth and tone of yesteryear's hand-built analog circuitry. Now with the release of the 6176, Universal Audio combines their highly acclaimed 610 tube microphone preamp with their legendary 1176LN compressor to create the ultimate single-channel signal path for everything from vocals to vibraphones.

    As reviewed by Doug on 6/7/2010

    This piece of gear is set up so conveniently. You can run the pre and the 1176 either in sequence or independently, so you never have to worry that you'll darken a sound too much that you just want through the compressor. The 610 pre is quite dark, but with good mic's and a good converter, you can still capture textures in the low end with a lot of clarity. The 1176 side of it is, of course, always a winner and has a well-deserved reputation as a go to compressor.
